The annual Christmas Kettle Campaign fell short of it’s $200,000 goal this year.

The campaign, which kicked off on Nov. 17, fell just $15,000 short.

Last week the Salvation Army made a final push in hopes to reach their goal.

“The fact that we went from an expected shortfall of $60,000 this time last week to only $15,000 in a matter of days, is absolutely wonderful,” said Major Stephen Hibbs, Corps Officer for The Salvation Army in Fort McMurray.

In just five weeks the Salvation Army was able to raise $185,000.

Donations can still be made at the Thickwood office at 125 Elmore Dr. on Dec. 27 and 28.
